I’ve been thinking about masks, image and reality for many years. Shifting identity from the masculine which was assigned to me, and considered to be real, to the embodiment of my inner feminine being opened my eyes to the power and significance of masks, the presentation of our being we light up for the world.
The Eye in the Mask is a chapter of my book The Choice. It comes from my understanding that there is always a single choice to be made in our lives; to come from the mind and all its illusions, or to come from the Centre, the core of our being, the mind-free Self.
This chapter neatly states what the Masks of Gender is all about, or at least the principle behind it. I decided to insert some readings of my own words, mostly from The Choice, to give added depth and spice to the lovely conversations with remarkable people.
